Hovering Above Zero by Lee Broom.

 Hovering: Denying, defying, never trying. How high? Above Zero.

(We need a Hero.)

Covering: The lies, the sighs, the highs, the sky’s the limit.

Discovering: A better way? What did I agree to? It’ll take a Higher Power? How high?

Recovering: Truth? Ohhhkay? How far? “Keep your eye on your steps!”  Okie dokie.

Savoring: Never wavering. How far? Any lengths?

LOVING? Flying with the birdies, my Luv. Flying with the birdies. How high? Join me? You over there. yeah.
Really?
Now really.

I’m tap, tap, tapping

I’m tap, tap, tapping

At my itty, bitty laptop

Thinkin’ in my tip-top

How to make it stop, stop.

Soundin’ kinda hip hop.

Wundrin’ how to say what I mean.

Nuff said.

I just finished watching a two-hour movie in Spanish.

I don’t speak Spanish.

It was a scenario with a psychedelic blend of imaginary cultures in an unfamiliar world, ten thousand years or so ago, give or take a century or two.

None of the different cultures understood each other’s words. There were people fighting, there was a love story, two wars, terrifying conflicts with carnivorous giant ostriches, a saber-tooth tiger and lots of mastodons.

There was a complicated story line and occasionally I would say to myself “Well, what the hell, if this was truly ten thousand years ago I wouldn’t speak those languages either.

When the movie was over I understood the entire thing. It might of well have been the English version. It didn’t matter. The words, dammit. They didn’t mean anything at all. Only hours ago I walked away from the end of a seventeen year old friendship. We fought over the fact that even though we both speak English-Only, we don’t speak the same language.

I know what the movie was about.

I know nothing of value about the real life story. Nothing. Absolutely NOTHING.

I’m tap, tap, tappin’

At my itty, bitty laptop

Thinkin’ in my tip-top

How to make it stop, stop.

THE TORTOISE

This wasn’t a first for me, Oh no. I’ve been booed before.

But boo they did and when again I deign to take the floor

I’ll bare my soul and quote no page

but those on which I write.

And right or wrong, I’ll live my life

And sing their song no more.

I choose to be the Tortoise. The world can be my Hare.

Whatever it takes to be myself is all I have to share.

So round them up my brothers, practice till it’s right.

Consensus is the plan it seems,

for those whose plans are merely schemes

and Might is Right (it’s done in teams)

I’ve heard the Lion’s Roar.
